    Ok, I asked this in chat, but I couldnt get a pic very quickly, so I was wondering how I could extend water into a little slot?

    The highlighted area is what I need to fill. I was told not filling would keep the water effect going, but it just makes a weird blue thing come up, like the slot is looking at the void, but the map is leak free. I tried again with nodraw and water on top, same effect. What can I do?

    It looks like you need to have a brush with an actual texture underneath that hole there, otherwise it technically is looking at nothing--IE The void.

    Try putting a grey grid brush under the water rather than nodraw.

    So tools/toolsblack still counts as a void? Lame I say :[ I just need to know if I should fill that slot (its empty right now) or not, and if so if I should texture a part with water.

    no, Toolsblack should seal the map. Open the map pointfile and look if you have some other leaks

    Yeah I checked, no leaks. I dont think its looking into the void itself, its just a weird blue... thing. Ill grab a pic of it. It doesnt make the cool copy-images like the void, it just behaves oddly. Wrong choice of word >_<.
